1958 Cadillac Runs & Drives After 15 Years & Commentary
I'm proud to say I have resurrected this car. It sat in a car port for 15 years but now she "runs like a sewing machine." New Exhaust pipes, carb from another car (63 Pontiac), rebuilt wheel cylinders for the brakes, new brake hoses, front end stabilizer pins and a few other things. Now she rides like a, well... Like a Cadillac!.. Next will be cleaning the fuel tank and fixing the fuel gauge...
Resurrecting a Classic Chevy
This is my 1968 Chevy Caprice. It was the very first car I ever worked on
as a Student of Auto Body way back 20 years ago. Since then the car has
lapsed into obscurity after the transmission went all kerflooey and sat
under a cedar tree for 16 years. The needles destroyed the paint, the vinyl
top was not replaced when the car was originally fixed, and the interior
was ruined when the top gave way. The car had about $3,000 put into the
engine (a 327 ci 275 hp engine that is original to the car) and the car
overall has about 87,000 original miles. As I stated, the car has sat for
the last 16 years and we dragged it to its current location, put a battery
in it, and after some tinkering, it started right up. It has a whole tank
of $.99 gas in it and it runs smoothly. The peck you hear in the video is
an Exhaust leak. If you have any
questions, drop me an e-mail.

1958 Cadillac Runs After 15 Years!
I bought this Cadillac and it hadn't run in 15 years. It was missing the
carburetor and the previous owner I guess thought that was the problem.
Well, the carb was lost by the mechanic over the years. I borrowed one from
a 1963 Pontiac parts car I have. Turns out the fuel pump was bad but I got
it running in 20 second spurts with a gravity feed. I used a funnel, a hose
and filled it with gasoline. It worked until the gas ran out but it was a
good way to test a few things. At least I spark, compression and oil
pressure and that all the valves were opening and closing.

exterior features in a detailed fashion, that before, you could only get

1958 Pontiac Star Chief Super Deluxe Series 58-28 Catalina Hardtop Sedan - SOLD!
Remember when.......? Many of us remember this great classic 1958 Pontiac
Star Chief Series 58-28 Catalina hardtop sedan even though there were less
than 22 thousand ever made.
It's all there, the 369 V-8 just puuuuurrrrrrrrs, it has an automatic
transmission, power brakes, a working radio, a working heater—AND it even
has cruise control. Overall miles are 109K, and it's a 2nd owner car.
We believe the original paint colors were Calypso Green and Patina Ivory.
As mentioned in the video, it does have some rust issues including floor
boards and will need that taken care. But you could quickly do that, paint
the hood and trunk to its original color, maybe replace the carpet and give
it a lube, oil and filter.
This survivor is an eye catcher and even though it needs restored, the
interior is in good shape over all as is the body and most of the paint.
You won't get in trouble with the spouse when you buy this one because you
can drive it while you restore it and you'll be cruisin' into summer.
Resurrecting the 1960 Cadillac
My brother bought a 1960 Cadillac. This is the first time it has ran in 16
years. I know I keep saying 8 in the video but it was actually 16. The old
guy he bought it from drove the car up from NM in 94 and started tearing it
apart to restore it but never finished and it sat in his barn since then.
